Bible reading: Zech. 4:6-10.

Memory verse: And though your start was small, your end will be very great “Job 8:7(BBE).

R.G. LeTourneau is perhaps the most inspiring Christian inventor, businessman and entrepreneur the world has ever seen. A sixth grade dropout, Robert Gilmore “R.G.” LeTourneau went on to become the leading earth moving machinery manufacturer of his day with plants on 4 continents, more than 300 patents to his name and major contributions to road construction and heavy equipment that forever changed the world. More importantly, his contribution to the advancement of the Gospel ranks him among the greatest of Christian businessmen of all time.

He dropped out of school and began working in an iron foundry at the age of 14, in the year 1901. Later, he discovered a passion for machinery, initially as an auto mechanic, and later as the manufacturer of the largest earth moving equipment on the planet. He left his business with $5,000 debt in 1915 and became jobless and broke.  

LeTourneau slowly expanded to larger land levelling contracts. He continually under-bid his competitors to win jobs and would scramble to invent machines to speed up the work and keep him from going broke. .

Quote: If you despise the little seed in your hands, you will never eat of its fruits.

Prophetic Word: Your present struggles shall call forth your glory, in Jesus name.

Prayer Point:

1. My Father, bless me indeed and expand my coast.

2. Power of divine acceleration, fall upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
